Vrai Jones Obituary
Vrai Vandiver Jones, 81, died peacefully on Monday, June 10, 2013, after an extended illness. She was preceded in death by her parents; Vincent and Vera Vandiver. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Donald R. Jones; daughter, Laurie Freeman and husband Pat; son Vince Jones and wife Veronica; grandchildren, Brian, Nancy and Cara Freeman and Michael and Avery Jones. Vrai was born in Kansas City, Missouri on March 16, 1932. She grew up in San Marino, California and graduated from UCLA in 1954 with a degree in Art Education. She married Don in 1954 and they shared the last 47 years in Houston, Texas. She was a full-time wife and mother who did a wonderful job at that demanding task, raising two fine children and looking after her husband, who was often busy with his career as a geologist and petroleum engineer. She was an accomplished artist and long-time member of WASH ( water color Art Society of Houston). She painted well in both watercolor and oil. Vrai was a loving person who gave of herself to everyone. She was kind and polite to everyone she met, and volunteered at the Pi Beta Phi Library at Texas Children's Hospital. She was especially kind to lonely, older people. The family wishes to thank La Toscha Miller, Erika Motte, and the staff of the Hampton at Post Oak, who helped Vrai physically and spiritually through her last illness. The funeral service will be on Saturday June 15, 2013 at 10:30 A.M. in the main Chapel of Forest Park Westheimer Funeral Home. Officiating will be the Rev. Murray Powell of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Family will attend a private graveside.
